Your stock Rims and tires will get you by until its time to invest on new tires, then but a rim/ tire package.

Thanks! I agree with you totally. That what i had in mind as well. My budget will probably be around 1500$ to spend. What do you think about the Eibach springs? Eibach Lowering Springs Sportline Front and Rear Red Ford Mustang Kit 803050230997 | eBay

Performance... nothing beats a tuner! Axle backs, sounds great, but do little for performance... but did I mention, they sound great! If you decide on a tuner go with AM SCT with tunes for life, that way any mods you do in the future will be easy to change the tune to match. Add an Air Raid CAI to the tuner while you are at it. Again, like exhaust there is very little improvement on Performance, but its a good combo.


Either way, make it you own! That's part of having a Mustang. As long as it meats your ideas... its a good mod! Good luck!

I think i might just go with cosmetics first.

Decide that first...then you can choose what parts you want to throw in it.
I guess im kinda narrowing it down to just lowering it first.
